Days away from the inaugural Vietnam International Poker Tour 2024 in Hanoi

Vietnam International Poker Tour

The spotlight shines on the Royal Poker Club Hanoi this month as the Vietnam International Poker Tour 2024 approaches. Set to take place in just a few days, April 19 to April 29, 2024, the inaugural event is a brainchild of the young poker room boasting a lineup of 37 trophy events and an impressive VN₫ 40 Billion (~USD 1.6 Million) in guarantees.

*Update: As of April 17, 2024, the Vietnam International Poker Tour will now take place at the Bolton Poker Club – 117 Tran Duy Hung, Cau Giay Dsitrict, Hanoi

This multi-billion figure may seem ambitious for a newcomer but with poker booming in Vietnam, players can expect a large crowd of international and local players jumping at the chance to tackle something new.

Buy ins for the upcoming VIPT range from VN₫ 2,300,000 (~USD 94) to the highest of VN₫ 88,000,000 (~USD 3,591) at the Super Star Challenge, ensuring every type of bankroll is covered. A “no winning fee” has also been announced. If you haven’t yet browsed the schedule, make sure to do so by scrolling down to the bottom of the page or by clicking on the link to the Player Guide.

For newcomers to Hanoi, Vietnam, heading to the VIPT 2024 will prove a thrilling new experience. Poker has been thriving in the capital city since 2022 with major international tours staging events regularly. In July last year, the Royal Poker Club Hanoi joined the local market, opening up in grand style with a room consisting of 40 tables, by far the largest in the country. The upcoming Vietnam International Poker Tour is the first homegrown major series created by the club.
